A few of the more humorous bowling shirts from a few of the many teams Dave Konkel has bowled for over the past 50 years.

Reaching a 50-year mark is a big accomplishment for anything, but if you can have a lot of fun and a lot of laughs doing it, then life is pretty good.

Dave Konkel, Wittenberg, graduated in 1970 and started league bowling that fall and is ready to start his 50th season.

“I’m not that good,” said Konkel. “When I quit having fun is when I’ll quit bowling.”
